Leeds manager Simon Grayson expects Bradley Johnson to leave Elland Road in the summer and sign for a Barclays Premier League club.

Johnson, 24, is out of contract this summer and has rejected a new offer to stay at Leeds, with the player's agent revealing he has received two offers from top-flight clubs.

Grayson said: "It's disappointing that it looks like Bradley won't be re-signing. We felt we made the player a suitable offer."

He added: "I'd like to thank Bradley for his contribution while I've been here, but the contractual situation that we work in nowadays means that players have the ability to make choices such as this.

"This is a situation we wanted resolving as a club because we're looking ahead to next season and planning ahead."


Johnson, placed on the transfer list back in January and linked with several top-flight clubs since, spent two-and-a-half years at Northampton before Leeds paid £250,000 for him in January 2008.
